Cathe Live Review: Metabolic Madness (#267)


Metabolic Madness is fun and fairly tough metabolic total body workout. This was actually tougher than I was expecting, for some reason, and I was pretty drenched by the end of it!

The workout is made up of fourteen metabolic strength exercises that you run through one after the other. Once completed you then get a short water break before repeating them all again. On the second round Cathe does forget the first exercise though, marching sumos, so these are inserted later in the round instead.


All of the exercises are very metabolic and provide a nice cardio effect even though there is no real cardio in this routine. The majority of the moves are compound and are generally done for 10 – 24 reps - so you will be feeling the work on some of these! In addition, the alternating front punches are done for much longer – the first set is 200 reps! Cathe uses 3 pound dumbbells for these and, before I started the set, I was debating whether to use 5’s instead but I am glad I didn’t - I was really feeling these by the end!


Cathe uses generally light to moderate weights for this routine and I generally stayed with the same weights, just using 5’s instead of 3’s a few times. However, I still got a great workout. I particularly found the rear lunges with 1 arm overhead press and the straight leg lifts with overhead tricep extensions pretty tough and was struggling on these towards the end. The rear lunges are also quite fast so, at times, I found it quite difficult to keep good form with a 15 pound dumbbell.


Overall, this was an excellent and fun metabolic workout that will work the body well and provide a good cardio effect too. I will definitely be returning to this one - as the workout just flew by and I really love these types of workout!
